Credit Transfer


General Guidelines for Granting Credit Transfer of DSR Subjects


Credit Transfer will be granted to BEng(Hons) Scheme in Aviation Engineering intakes with advanced qualification. The general guidelines are as follows:

  • Granting of credit transfer is a matter of academic judgment mainly based on the subject contents and the learning outcomes attained.
  • The subject contents attained should be at least 75% similar to the PolyU subjects of a similar level, credits and contact hours.
  • The subject grade/mark achieved should be B/70% or above.


Entry Credit Transfer

As from the 2022/23 intake cohort, students holding A-Level or IB qualifications may be given credit transfer upon their admission to the 4-year full-time undergraduate degree schemes / programmes. Normally, they will be given credit transfer from 9 credits (including 6 credits for the broadening subjects and 3 credits for University English under the Language & Communication Requirements) to a maximum of 25% of the award requirements, depending on their previous study and grade attainments.

For students admitted based on other qualifications, the number of credit transfer to be granted at admission will be considered on individual merits.

For students admitted to senior year of our 4-year full-time undergraduate degree programme, they will follow a reduced curriculum of 60 to 75 credits, and further credit transfer will not be possible.
